We've had an amazing strength in numbers with our July meetup and we aim to keep the momentum going. We invite you to stay on this journey with us as we try to bring UX to not only the community but to business as well. So feel free to bring your colleagues, managers, CEO's along to share in the experience.

Speaker: Kerry-Anne Gilowey

Topic: Content's Forgotten Corners

Description: In this session, Kerry-Anne will take us on a magical mystery tour to some of the abandoned, neglected, and forgotten corners of the content landscape.
The way that content creation has traditionally been positioned in organisations – usually as copywriting, and under the guardianship of the marketing team – has led to all kinds of important things slipping through the cracks and causing UX havoc later on.

Inscrutable error messages, badly truncated headlines, and conflicting factual information pop up like ghouls and ghosties on a House of Horror ride, and upset our users when least expected.

We’ll explore how traditional content processes affect user experience, and what we can all do to address some of these neglected content areas.

We look forward to seeing all of you again.
